It is reported that participation of SMMEs in the Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) sector is hindered by various barriers to entry. SITA has invested time and resources to ensure more involvement of small organisations in the ICT industry.
The theme for forthcoming 2016 Govtech conference is “How technology improves service delivery for citizenship”. The conference which commences on the 30th October 2016 will provide SMMEs with an opportunity to network with like-minded professionals, provide them with access to decision makers and equipment manufactures & procurement officers.
The conference calls on key role players to continue investing in technology research and innovation in order to promote access to economic opportunities.
